Escape Game_





Escape Roof_

By Schwab System

Thirsty to be tested and challenged, the SCHWAB-SYSTEM company wanted to push itself beyond its limits to make the most of its technical construction capabilities as well as the ingenious minds of its team. This has been the origin of the Escape Roof project. But what’s it all about?

For over 70 years our company has provided solutions in the wood construction sector. In 2014, we built our new production factory. The rooftop  has been organized only later, with the purpose of making you discover the universe of SCHWAB-SYSTEM and above all, resolving its mysteries…

On our Rooftop, many secrets are kept and enigmas are revealed.  Solve all the puzzles, answer the questions you are asked…. and maybe you’ll manage to change the course of history.

This intense escape adventure begins already here and now, with the following question: do you think you’re up to the challenge?

Friends, work colleagues or parents, the experienced or the beginner, young, old or retired, confident or unsure… whoever you are, dare to challenge your skills in the ESCAPE ROOF quest to try and maybe solve its mysteries.  But don’t forget…

...the clock is ticking.

The Rooms_

The Alfred Schwab

A visionary, he plans to bestow the means to accomplish his vision on the future generations. But beware, the ingenious and wiley man that he is, he won’t give them all the keys to success without challenging them.

In 90 minutes, put yourself in skin of a descendant of Alfred and try to solve the puzzles, hidden in the nooks and crannies of the workshop of this mischievous craftsman. Will you manage to find your way despite all the obstacles? Above all, don’t forget that longevity of his heritage and his values depend on it.

« The End »

The new cinema hall « the Dark Pearl »has opened. The company SCHWAB-SYSTEM, leader in cinema renovations, gave the place a new lease of life.

But it transpires however that since the opening, there has been a persistent problem. Indeed, it seems that none of the film showings have reached their end and that some strange events are happening, without any obvious explanation. Spectators are trapped in the cinema, unable to get out.

Will you have enough courage to attempt the adventure? Will you know how to outwit the evil spirits that hide in the Hidden Pearl? Apparently you only have 60 minutes to get out in time and avoid becoming trapped in this frightening place.
